works. obviously the big story is the climate story and what happened in copenhagen a few weeks ago. i have been astonished watching the globals then after the copenhagen meeting. what happened there is perceived completely differently in europe than it is here and in utterly differently in india then it is in europe, so if you track the flow of blogs and columns that are coming across on this, the assessment ranges from catastrophe to success. my sense of the story is there were actually to copenhagen meetings. there was a formal treaty negotiation that has been going on a essentially since the united states framework convention on climate change was ratified by 190 some nations back in the early 1990's and culminated in copenhagen, and there was a very brief 12-hour head of state negotiation that took place at the end of the copenhagen meeting. the first negotiation, the formal one, failed. the second one, i will talk about that a little more in a moment but i want to give you some background to understand what was happening there. every discussion of international climate change neg
such as spike its coverage not just copenhagen but it is going up and up and it seems we're doing something right and that is because the staff is so committed to speaking to journalists were in the old days they would sit in the office and do research. they are still doing that now but now they are more willing to talk to the press and that makes me happy also be cuss number one, we have a tremendous communications staff is an honor to work with it is like madmen without the cigarettes and booze. we have a leadership from the first-rate bert -- board fell lets us do what we want to do just like bloomberg president and steve ross miami dolphins owner, and al gore and i can go on. third we have a president who, for years, has been telling our staff which is growing to communicate and do it well. it is great to be with you and our great staff. before i call up jonathan lash to speak just a couple of logistical things. turnoff yourself of. he will speak half of the times "60 minutes" then open it up to answering your questions. you have myself end jessica over there in the black will have micr
in copenhagen in december. in hopenhagen. [laughter] i love that. i am optimistic and more so now than ever before. this is the most important moral problem of our time, and i believe that with with your help and all of us working together that we are on our way to solving it. the political will is developing, and state by state the across the united states laws are being made to restrict carbon dioxide. there are 900 mayors who have formed a coalition, and many governor thes have come together -- governors have come together with commitments to curb carbon emissions. renales like the northeast and in the northwest. they have set their own standards. they're not waiting for the federal government. individual cities are committing to drastic cuts in electricity through energy efficiency and creating ways to invest in renewable energy. the youth are mobilizing, and large corporations are calling on the government to regulate greenhouse gases. many of them, many of these large businesses are leaving the u.s. chamber of commerce. now, you may have seen recently in the news that one -- there wer
, in copenhagen, they were offering the best chance to deal with the climate and ecosystems. >> be we need to be able to price carbon as well as understand what the risk of return is. business will be able to unleash this entire potential for a new low carbon economy. it is absolutely critical that we get this deal. whether we get in copenhagen, that is uncertain but we will have a path forward. i think this is the best way forward in order to solve this problem. >> president obama has announced when he is going. he went with all the other leaders. what does this mean for the meeting? >> what we have seen over the past couple of weeks is certainly an increased expectation that we will get out of copenhagen. i think what obama has done recently by setting up a provisional target, by changing the arrival date towards the end of the session which is more important, also by offering some financial increased commitment to help developing countries. >> what do you think about the prospects for a global approach for dealing with this most global of problems. this is a very attractive points? >> a
those are not the number one issues for them. why is it important to flight to copenhagen, not once but twice? so i'm not saying that to be smarty, so much as i am asking question, why aren't we listening to people when they say they are starting for jobs lexa they're looking for economic rebounds. why do we look at the 16 million plus women in this country who currently owns all or part of a small business, and think of the untold millions of other american women who would love to harness their entrepreneurial spirit and create a little bit of a nest egg in flexibility and ownership for their small businesses? why can't we allow them just to flourish rather than try to suffocate them from the beginning? and so i want to read some of these numbers do you. i'm looking at over 30 crosstabs right here, and we compiled this from a number of national and publicly released poll so that the sample size is taken from over 3000 people in each of the three month periods between january 2009 and january of 2000. over a full year now. president obama's approval ratings have declined among every
of the outreach, and the efact it's had. copenhagen in underreported story he arrives late and he wants an agreement with the chinese premier. but he makes a strong statement on arrival that the chinese have to allow inspections. the chinese are insulted as the meetings he scheduled with the chinese prime minister. the prime minister doesn't show up. he sends a deputy to the first meeting. then an even lower level associate to a second. same with iran, where obama is rebuffed again and again and again with the russians. he got nothing in return. you wonder how long this process -- and the promise always is well, we are planning to seeds, it takes a while. we have to relax america's image. when the world loves us again we get cooperation. it hasn't happened and you wonder how long he will wait. >> bret: a.b., his critics say he was naive on a number of decisions and a number of actions. do you think that the president has really grown or changed in his first year in office? >> the most interesting question as we head to next year is whether or not we will see heads roll, new chief of sta

talk a little bit about energy but not much about copenhagen again or climate change and the development agenda with regard to adaptation and mitigation. >> thank you, hattie. has you know, we are very committed to a program of supporting adaptation and mitigation and technology transfer in the developing world. i went to copenhagen and announced that the united states would commit to do our part of $100 billion by 2020. we worked very hard to get the building blocks of an agreement that would enable us to do so. the accord that we finally hammered out did have requirements for verification and transparency which have to be adhered to in order for us to be able and, frankly, willing to make these investments. but i think that for many of the developing countries, this is a lifeline that they are desperate to have and that they will work with us as we try to sort out how best to deliver on that commitment. this is going to be an ongoing challenge and that is why i mention we have to do a better job of getting some of the other countries that have a role to play more co

not done all it can do to bring the international community to a deal in copenhagen and beyond copenhagen. and of course on the economic end, there is a sense that africa's resources are being extracted at all costs and that the people on the continent, those in communities on whose land resources lie, are still being marginalized, still being seen as invisible, even with obama in the white house. >> i guess that she pointed out the disappointments. what successes would we point to on the part of the administration? >> i would start by saying i wouldn't characterize it as disappointments. they are more concerns. i just got back from three weeks in west africa where it is evident there is still a great deal of hope. i would say president obama has a great deal of political capital spent on the continent. but in terms of successes, to me i think one of the biggest success cases is the fact that in his first year as a president, he visited the continent and we s the secretary of state visit -- spend ten days on the continent and visited over seven countries. this was quite significant.os the

that it is really a problem, and i think also, the really effective work that was done in copenhagen and trying to get the chinese and the indians in particular on board, because that's a big argument that the opponents make, is that, you know, we're going to do all this, we're going to, you know, raise our energy prices, we're going to make it harder to do business and then china and india are going to go take advantage of that and use that as a competitive advantage and we're going to lose more jobs, so -- but there are lots and lots of examples on both sides of effective messaging and ineffective and i think professor griffin will talk about that later. he'll probably give you a lot more insight into it too. yeah. >> we talked about -- [inaudible] -- if so, why and if you've seen advantages or disadvantages to that or not being a federally registered lobbyist and working through them instead. >> well, i've only been doing this for two years and in the two years i've been doing it, the rules have been very clear, so you know, there is -- there's really not much gray in what i do. you know, i'

in copenhagen where you saw president obama having to wrestle with all these tensions. can you imagine the nerve it took to walk into closed-door sessions as the president blowing at diplomatic protocol, wrenching the copenhagen assembly out of its original approach and into something new and doing this not knowing if it was going to work. in the article, i wrote about an important moment for president obama and he would get to this one way or another. this would be in the summer of 1864 near the end of president lincoln's first term. he reelection campaign is going and it is not going well. in fact, he in of the political experts in the country think he is going to lose. furthermore they think he is going to lose to general mcclellan who will not pursue lankan score policies in the civil war. lincoln, at that point, is living with the idea that he said hundreds of thousands of young men to their deaths for a failed war. he will be known as the president to failed to hold the union together. he is getting up every morning with that knowledge, living with a wife who was, frankly at times, psychot
